Sous Chef Johnny Seesaw's

  • Date Posted July 31, 2021
  • Location Peru, VT
  • Category Culinary
  • Job type Full-Time
Company description Johnny Seesaw’s has been a staple in the southern Vermont community for more than 80 years. It was originally one of the first ski lodges in the US and catered to the “well to do” crowd and has since evolved into a family centric destination for several generations. The property was fully renovated (including a new state of the art kitchen) and reopened in the summer of 2018 and the 90 seat locally focused restaurant opened with top notch reviews.

We serve fresh fare rooted in tradition. Johnny Seesaw’s serves up simple inventive food with deep connections to the surrounding area and the inn’s heritage. Incorporating local ingredients with a fresh twist, our menu celebrates Vermont and elevates comfort food.
